My girlfriend and I bought the tickets for both museums, however, we can't really see all things in an half day. I would suggest to buy one if you come late. We visited the folk museum and went into the village hundred years ago, saw their building, life and history. There were three exhibitions which showed the jobs of blacksmith,... More

Many historic houses and businesses relocated to a central "theme park" venue. Good value. Even gave seniors discount to Aussies.

Such a great family day out yesterday! Both Museums were fantastic, so interesting and packed full of information! I have to say I do love the old houses in the folk park and could spend a day in itself going round them :) My nephews loved it and I can't praise the staff enough! Especially the gentleman who works in... More

This place is well worth a visit, but go on a good day weather wise, there's lots to see, and all the old Irish cottages have been removed and re-built in this area. A really great day out, Oh! and theres a lovely Cafe with good choice of food, and drinks. Very enjoyable.

You can spend hours , go again and see something new I prefer the outdoors of the Ulster museum. I thought it was just the village area but the walks 'farm' areas and rural cottages very realistic. Enjoyed the outdoor feel, great for children who get bored quickly. The can run!

Really enjoyed the Folk Park, it was great to interact with the people cooking, "living" etc in the houses. It was very well organised, laid out and very well kept. The trains in the transport museum are superb, unfortunately the "new" home for the air, land and sea exhibits was a bit lacking and not really worth the walk down... More

I have family in these parts and my wife and two cousins go off to the shops while I get to do what I want. Result. Everyone is happy. My cousins' parents took me here for my first visit in 1968 and I have been back over a dozen times since. I always look for changes an additions but there... More
